Before your St. Lawrence visit
Get your travel plans set. St. Lawrence University, nestled between the Adirondack Mountains and the Canadian border, is the closest private college to a foreign capital (Ottawa, Canada). There’s no place like the North Country, but you should find that out for yourself! Make plans to stay at the University’s own Best Western University Inn right next to campus so you can have some time to explore the region. Find other great information on the university’s Visit page, and you can find other accommodations on the St. Lawrence University Profile Page.
Pick your visit type. Choose a visit option that meets your needs. Options include designated visit days, a weekday visit, or an overnight visit. Ask to sit in on a class and meet with a professor!
During your St. Lawrence visit
You deserve a cookie! When you visit, not only do you get a warm welcome — you also get a warm cookie. It’s more than a treat – it’s a tradition. It’s a perfect example of the St. Lawrence way.
While you’re on campus, take a breath. You’ll notice you have room to breathe, room to think, room to explore. See what it’s like to be one of 2,500 students from 43 states, and 51 countries, on a 1,000-acre campus. That’s nearly half an acre per student!
You’re already there, so make the most of your visit. Take the guided tour and then ask some questions about campus places you can explore on your own (off the beaten path). Sample the food on campus (rated among the best in the nation) and locally (ask about the pizza rolls!). Talk to students and staff you see on campus and ask why they choose to be at St. Lawrence.
After your St. Lawrence Visit
Evaluate your visit once you’re back. What did you like best? What did you forget? Reconnect with your tour guide or admissions contact, and you can ask the questions you forgot to when you were there.
